Peru, Nebraska– Six Peru State College Health and Physical Education majors presented at the 2018 Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) America, Central District Conference under the mentorship of Dr. Frank Lynott and Dr. Shana Walsh.
Students Luke Hoesing, Zach Reynolds, and Delaney Woodruff researched, developed and presented on teaching techniques to increase moderate to vigorous physical activity in physical education courses.
Reynolds writes, “It was a highlight of my college career.”
Woodruff adds, “It was awesome to present our ideas and see actual teachers get excited about using them!”
Students Eric Brown, Destiny Worthey, and Savannah Paugstat presented on the theoretical foundations of kinesthetic learning theory, and then they provided multiple examples of teaching through movement in the health classroom.
Walsh and Lynott, both assistant professors of health, physical education and recreation at Peru State, report that the students demonstrated professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm, and Peru State College should be proud of their representation.
